Covering Dirt With Dirt
Lovely little film promoting Jersey City, New Jersey. Likely made around 1970 (the mayor and the bank president shown at the beginning of the film would date this film around this time), the film does a hell of a job of trying to promote businesses to come to Joisee to do your business there. Businesses are coming here, shops are opening up, Urban sprawl is decreasing... come! come! Unfortunately for them, it would take a good number of years (at least 10+) before the city would come to life again, and, unfortunately for our Mayor friend, he would find himself in jail in due time for corruption charges.
